Thomas Murray Digital
Digital Asset Risk for Institutional Investors
Digital asset risk should be limited to the success or failure of an instrument, not the operations that support investment.
We give our clients greater confidence to invest in cryptocurrencies and other digital assets by assessing service providers’ capabilities and ensuring that their investments are properly serviced and safeguarded throughout the lifecycle.
Digital assets have risen in value dramatically since 2017. Funds of all risk appetites are adding exposure, and many dedicated funds have been launched. Regulation of the sector has not yet solidified, and the risks are often not fully understood.
Thomas Murray Digital provides trusted, independent validation of service providers – including exchanges and custodians – ensuring that their capabilities and operational safety are fully understood and satisfy investors’ requirements.
Standardised, comparable and filterable reference data on the basic facts and capabilities of digital asset service providers.
Risk assessments and intelligence on crypto exchanges, custodians and other digital asset market infrastructures.
Expertly managed RFP programmes through our widely-used proprietary application to select the right service provider.
Ongoing due diligence and benchmarking of counterparties for efficient compliance and risk mitigation.
